Hey there, I'm Heather!

day of wedding checklist

Your mind is racing weeks maybe even months before your wedding day and you’re feeling overwhelmed of how to keep everything together and what you need to bring. I’m hoping I can help you with your day of wedding checklist cause I was a bride to and went through exactly what you are going through.

weeks leading up to the wedding

Preparing for one of the most biggest days of your life can feel very daunting. Things are racing in your head and you feel like you don’t know where to start. In 2018, I was sitting at my desk at work and things were going through my head and I’m like “Crap, we need to get things together so we don’t forget anything.” So I talked it over with Tyler and we came up with the idea of dedicating one room or corner of all things wedding. Literally, EVERYTHING. Of course, the dress needed to be tucked away, but everything from our mason drinking jars to permanent markers were put into this corner.

As we put things in this corner/room we wrote down what was there and how many. We used totes to carry majority of things. As the weeks leading up to the day we felt so stress free, cause every time we thought of something as we talked wedding details we were like “Oh, we got to put that in the corner!” We found room for it and wrote it down. Writing it down it will help you know what and how many is in that dedicated corner/room.

I feel pretty proud of this system. It gave me the freedom of starting where ever I wanted and just put things in the corner without the feeling of “I don’t know where start!” Then the Friday before our Saturday wedding we were able to load everything up knowing we had everything and didn’t leave ANYTHING behind.

“The photos that stand out to me most are the ones of my husband and I dancing the polka at our reception with my 93-year-old grandparents. I feel so fortunate to have had both of them in person at our wedding, let alone up dancing on the dance floor with us, even for a brief time. I still cry when I look at them. They will be so special to us in years to come.” 

“Heather knew getting photos with my grandparents
was very important to me, and she delivered!“


“However, what won me and my husband over was our first meeting with her. She was the most bubbly, pleasant, friendly, loving human being. We appreciated her warmth and her attention to detail. She was well-established, a wonderful planner, and she truly wanted us to have the greatest memories.”

“I loved her pictures. It was like love at first sight!”


“She has such a passion for her couples and capturing their true love story! It shows completely when she is snapping away. Her facial expressions and the gasps she makes when she takes a picture that she loves are just the best! We never had someone get as excited as her when taking pictures! And we love it!”

“Heather truly makes you feel like you are her
favorite couple ever to work with!”
